Asta 20 PAR Review

I thought this may be interesting and useful to some on the forum. I have been running an Asta 20 on my 40 gallon blackwater take for a few months now. I just recently purchased a Seneye PAR meter, so I figured it would be good to share my results. Measurements were taken under the light, with fresh water, 16 inches deep and the light 8 inches from the surface.

Interesting the impact the 90 degree lens has on the PAR, but expected. This seems to be a great little light for the nano tank, or use two or three of them for 20 - 40 gallon tanks. It is equipped with a dimmer as well. These readings were taken at 100%.

Here is the link to it on Amazon:

Here are the readings and the testing setup.

I bought this light this week from looking at your tank a while back and it's pretty nice. I got around the same numbers using my phone 1430 lumens/40ish par at 24-25 inches away with the tighter optic. So, the galaxy s20 sensor is damn near in line with the Seneye🤔

Asta 20 PAR Review

I just set up a tank last week and used this light.
I was a bit concerned when took it out of the box that it would be too heavy for a rimless tank, but after securing on side glass it was fine.
Thanks for the review. Here is light on my tank:
